A longtime client I'll call "Betty" asked me to give a talk about how to survive in an organization that's going through a multi-year transition.
I was pleased to speak at the company where Betty is a manager. But when she told me the topic, I was surprised. That's because I can't think of anybody more adept than Betty at navigating a rewarding career through an industry experiencing prolonged restructuring. She has survived multiple mergers, division liquidations and realignments. And she's been adept at jumping ship and making a great landing at the perfect time.
